Pitchers, Catchers Report

At the time of this posting, New York City is expected to get hit with the first snow storm of the winter an temperatures drop in the 20s.
At the time of this posting, Tampa Bay has patches of drizzly rain and the temperature is in the high 60s.
Now don't you wish you tried a bit harder in high school to catch the scouts eyes?
Yankees (and Diamondbacks) pitchers and catcher reported to their respective training facilities. For the Yankees, it is Legends Field in Tampa Bay, Florida (ty fucktard anon comment).
Kei Igawa took center stage for this is his first major league spring training assignment, the Japan import was signed by the Yankees a few weeks after the Red Sox signed Dice-K (I can't spell his name, so deal with the shortcut).
Although Dice-K is statistically better than Igawa, they will have to pitch it out during the season and throw the rivalry in the Rookie of the Year just as A-Rod and Papi went head to head for the 2004 MVP.
Another name that has recently made headline is the future of Mariano Rivera. The 37-year old Panama native has not mentioned anything about a return for 2008, but has said that he would like to finish his career in pinstripes but will leave if he is not respected through his contract.
Other notables making their spring debut are Andy Pettitte and Carl Pavano who will have to do an American Idol-like audition for a spot in the rotation.
Derek Jeter, Jorge Posada, Miguel Cairo have also reported to camp early.

    Legends Field is in Tampa, dumbass, not St. Pete. The Rays play their regular season at the Trop in St. Pete.
